Theodore Wiklund, a tenth grader at Cy Woods High School, has recently earned Eagle, the highest rank in Boy Scouting. He passed his Board of Review in early April and his Court of Honor will be June 9, 2013. Theodore is a member of Boy Scout Troop 179, chartered by St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church. The troop is guided by Scoutmaster Doug Rodenberger. Among the many requirements to achieve the rank of Eagle, one is a major service project. Theodore and a team of volunteers spent nearly 140 hours on a construction project benefiting Special Education Assistance Services. SEAS is a non-profit organization that provides advocacy and therapy for students with learning differences, who might otherwise not be able to afford services. Theodore designed and built a rotating brochure display tower and refinished a bulletin board and bookcase for SEAS. Theodore’s journey to Eagle covered more distance than most. He began his Scouting career as a Cub Scout in Moscow, Russia. He then moved to Singapore, where he earned the Superachiever Award and Arrow of Light. The Arrow of Light is the only Cub Scout award worn on the Boy Scout uniform. Theodore lived in Hamburg, Germany for 18 months, but the closest Boy Scout troop was three hours away. He moved to Cypress in 2009 and joined Troop 179 in early 2010. Theodore worked diligently to progress through the Boy Scout ranks and has earned his Eagle just as he prepares for another move. The Wiklund family will move this summer to England, coincidentally the home of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouts. In addition to Scouting, Theodore is active in Tae Kwon Do. He wears a second dan black belt. He also plays clarinet in the Cy Woods Wildcat Band. Theodore is the son of Robert and Carrie Wiklund.

Neighborhood Resident to Produce Fiddler on the Roof You may have known him as “Coach Michael” on the Coles Crossing soccer field, “Chef Michael” at Girl Scout Camping Weekend, “Morgan and Kendall’s dad,” or simply “Mr. Montgomery”—but Coles Crossing resident, Michael Montgomery has a new moniker: Mr. Producer.   Michael is the producer for Houston Family Arts Center’s upcoming summer production of Fiddler on the Roof, playing at The Berry Center, July 12-28, this summer. Annie, which was the theatre’s spring production, was Michael’s producing debut. If you were lucky enough to get a ticket to that show (all but one show sold out), you saw the caliber of talent and production value that Houston Family Art Center brings to northwest/west Houston. Fiddler on the Roof is set in the little village of Anatevka. There, Tevye, a poor dairyman and father of five daughters, tries to preserve the traditions of his tight-knit Jewish community in the face of changing social influences and the growing anti-Semitism of Tsarist Russia.  Montgomery enthusiastically explains, “This show is rich. Rich in message, characters, music and setting. Although the story is told in a specific time period, it reflects issues that many deal with in 2013. It’s a great conversation-starter for your family to discuss topics such as family tradition, generation gaps and religious and cultural intolerance . “The caliber of directors, talent and production value in this show is very unique for suburban theatre. And since many of the actors in this show are actual families, we’ve been able to put together a great show and simultaneously create awesome memories for those involved. As a family man, I’m proud to be part of bringing such quality theatre to the suburbs for an affordable price. I hope to see many of my neighbors at the shows in July.” Tickets are available at www.houstonfac.com. ABOUT HOUSTON FAMILY ARTS CENTER Founded in 2005, HOUSTON FAMILY ARTS CENTER (HFAC) is a not-for-profit arts and educational organization, with a passion for entertaining, enlightening and engaging audiences. Recently named “Houston’s Best Gem of a Theater” by the Houston Press, and the winner of the prestigious national 2012 American Association of Community Theatre Twink Lynch Award, HFAC produces a broad mix of classics, comedies, dramas, Broadway hits, and new works. Through its awardwinning Actors Academy, HFAC offers educational opportunities for all ages through classes, summer camps and youth productions. To purchase tickets, sign up for auditions or classes, or for more information, please visit www.houstonfac.com or call HFAC Box Office at 281-685-6374 or HFAC Actors Academy at 281-685-2623.

COLES CONNECTION Travel the World Without Leaving Your Hometown By Heather Wells Who hasn’t dreamed about walking among the Egyptian pyramids, or soaking in the sun on a beach in Spain, or wandering along the Great Wall of China? Every parent wants to give their children a taste of the world, but the economic reality of international air travel for a family, not to mention hotels, passports and food, makes it tough for most of us to consider except in our daydreams. There is a way to give your children the world – without leaving your living room. How? Host a foreign exchange student from a country you’ve always admired! Fascinated by France? Curious about China? Intrigued by India? By welcoming an international student from one of these countries into your home, you instantly open a portal to a far off land. “My husband and I have been hosting for the past three years and have enjoyed every minute of it!” said Vicki Odom, an Ayusa host mom from Pearland, Texas. “The various students we’ve had in our home have taught us a great deal about their home countries. The students also love learning about life in Texas and participate in a good deal on community service.” Foreign exchange students come from all over the world. Ayusa matches host families with students from more than 60 different countries. All high school foreign exchange students are fully insured, bring their own spending money, and are proficient in English – and all high school exchange programs are regulated by the U.S. Department of State. “We welcome host families of all shapes and sizes – families with young

children, families with no children, empty nesters whose children have left home, single parents and non-traditional families,” says Connie Coutu, Regional Manager of Ayusa, a non-profit that promotes global learning and leadership through foreign exchange and study abroad opportunities for high school students. “The key requirements for a host family are to provide a safe and nurturing home environment, genuinely love children, and have a desire to learn more about a different culture.” Volunteer host families provide foreign exchange students a nurturing environment, three meals a day and a bedroom (either private or shared with a host sibling of the same gender). Each host family and student is supported by a professionally trained community representative who works with the family and student for the entire program. All interested host families must pass a criminal background check and a home visit by an exchange organization. Interested host families are required to fill out an application, pass a background check and interview with a local exchange program representative in their homes. Once accepted to a program, host families can view profiles of students to find the right match for their family. Ayusa is currently accepting applications for families to host an exchange student for the 2012 – 2013 school year. For more information about hosting a high school foreign exchange student, please contact Ayusa at 1.888.552.9872 or by visiting the website at www.ayusa.org.

COLES CONNECTION A Hearing Or Vision Test May Be Solution To "Bad Behavior"

For some children a health problem could be to blame for acting up in class or even a drop in grades. Doctors at Baylor College of Medicine say what might look like a behavioral issue could actually be a signs of hearing or vision problems. If a child cannot hear or see properly, they cannot pay attention in class, said Dr. James H. Bray, associate professor of family and community medicine at BCM. Bray said children may think they can hear what the teacher is saying but actually are getting the information wrong, so it looks like they aren¹t paying attention or are being defiant. Bray said it is important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. "Before a parent begins to worry, a family medicine doctor or pediatrician can conduct a basic hearing and vision test that can identify whether a hearing or vision specialist is needed, or if another problem is to blame," Bray said. Bray said once a diagnosis is made there may be simply solutions, such as making sure a child sits in the front of the class.
